U.S. EPA Report Assists the Water Reuse Cause
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has published a draft "National Water Reuse Action Plan" [pdf], identifying "46 proposed actions organized around 10 strategic objectives, including leadership and collaboration, to support the implementation of water reuse," according to an article on the WaterNewsNetwork of the San Diego County Water Authority.
"The draft plan incorporates federal, state, tribal and local water perspectives and highlights key actions that support consideration and implementation of water reuse," according to the article. The report anticipates water shortages in 40 states over the next decade, and promotes water reuse as a local source of water sustainability and supply diversification.
The plan now enters a 90-day comment period before it will be added to the Federal Register.
